Let nothing come between my soul and God.
Keep nothing back from God—tell Him everything as if He knew nothing about it.
Be mercilessly true to yourself, and have everything out with God; none will ever treat you so tenderly as He.
The measure of my love for God's Word is the measure of my love for God; as you reverence Him, so you reverence it.
There is no halting-place short of conformity to Christ; but there is no need to be disheartened, the Holy Spirit is here to work this out in us.
We have a four-fold Strength:- The Holy Spirit, The Word of God, The Throne of Grace, A Pair of Knees. Make use of them: but there is nothing for lazy people. Take time to pray.
Buy the Truth and sell it not. There is a bidder for it—the Devil.
Dig into the Word, and meditate upon it. Use your spare moments in the street—anywhere—for meditation. Learn to abstract yourself.
Spiritual thinking is what we need; we must work it into our souls. God will reward you. "He that tilleth his land shall have plenty of bread." Only that which you appropriate benefits you. (See Prov. 12:2727The slothful man roasteth not that which he took in hunting: but the substance of a diligent man is precious. (Proverbs 12:27)).
Is the fear of man before me, or am I satisfied with the private approval of Christ?
If you want to get on, keep on praying.
Whatever my circumstances are, can I say: "God is love"?
